Tom Hardy will Play Eddie Brock in Sony and Marvel’s “Venom”

Sony just announced an update on its newest installment of its Marvel expanded universe, Venom.

Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) is set to star as Eddie Brock in Venom, the upcoming film from Sony’s Marvel Universe. The production is set to start this Fall with a US release date of October 5, 2018.

Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) are writing the script for Venom, with Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal as producers. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman will oversee the production for Columbia Pictures.

Venom is one of the most popular superheroes in the Marvel Universe and is unique because Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and many other Marvel Comics characters.

Ruben Fleischer is the best choice to direct the property as he brilliantly showcased his ability to bring together dark themes with humor inZombieland.

Likewise, Tom Hardy is a huge fan of Venom and has a strikingly similar look to the original comic’s depiction of Eddie Brock.
